i was wondering what kind of body i could put a different body on a scout frame?? i can get a 1972 scout from my uncle but the body is gone. i was wondering if i could put something like a jeep or s-10 or even better a corvett body on the drive train?? how hard would it be?? has anybody done it??? if so any pictures??
I've got a Jeep Wrangler body on an '80 turbo diesel. It took some very major mods to make it work. I had to shorten the frame and driveshafts several inches. I also had to move the radiator to the rear and run coolant pipes to the back. You can veiw a picture at http://www.fortunecity.com/silversto...jeepsmoke2.jpg
Other mods include spring-over-axle lift, rear springs moved under framerails for more articulation, custom rub-rails and diamond plate alum fenders, full roll cage, three inch exhaust with no muffler.
